Let it Snow .......

Happy weekend ......

Good morning! It's Linda here with a little bit of last minute Christmas card inspiration for you .... or maybe you're super organised and it's an early idea for next years cards. Either way its a nice simple design, using the pretty Let It Snow stencil from the last release and a little bit of Brusho magic

I don't know about snow ..... it's been a little wet where I am.  No white Christmas for us I'm afraid, so I've created my own little flurry of snowflakes.

I used the stencil along with some Versamark ink which I lightly sponged through the design onto a piece of white cardstock.  I then heat embossed with a detail white EP powder.

Next, I sprinkled a tiny bit of Cobalt Blue Brusho powder over the top, keeping the powder towards the top edge of my card.
I then spritzed with a little water and let the Brusho powder do it's magic,

I wanted to create this ombre effect so I kept most of the colour at the top edge of the card, letting it fade out gradually as the water took it down over the embossed snowflakes.

Because the snowflake design had been heat embossed, this acted as a resist to the Brusho colour, and when I mopped up all the excess water the snowflakes really came to life again ..... so simple to do and no two pieces will ever be the same.

A simple sentiment, a touch of glitter, and some sparkly sequins add the finishing touches.

I hope you've managed to get all your festive makes done in time for the big day.
Not long to wait now.

Thanks for popping by.

I'd like to wish you all 
 a very Merry Christmas
 and a 
Happy and Healthy New Year

Have a great time ..... I hope Santa brings you everything on your list .... and more.
See you in 2019!

Cheerio until next time ......
